I do not buy any regular magazines from the newsagent or supermarkets, though I've sometimes indulged in specific editions of Beading & Gardening titles which have particular articles I wish to have repeated access to,if I feel like spolinig myself! I have often bought these cheaply at the local op shop which always gets lovely clean,almost new copies in! I get my fill of the others at my monthly visits to my doctors and pathology rooms!!!! I really am not interested in the 'gossip' about celebrities at all,but I do enjoy the recipes and such-like which are also in many magazines! My lovely doctor's receptionists will always photocopy any which I would like to have,or sometimes even remove them from the magazines and give the actual pages to me to take home.
I find that the prices of magazines these days make them somewhat of a luxury for me as I am unable to work any more!
I sometimes buy them. I like Dumbo Feather, which is a beautiful magazine featuring long interviews with interesting creatives and entrepreneurs. Sometimes I indulge and buy something "trashy" though, like SHOP or CLEO. Everyone has weaknesses!
I used to buy lots of magazines, everything from fiction mag to photography and writing magazines. I haven't done so for a number of years though. Most of the same information is available online. Also, I hate carting around magazines when I move or having to store them, if they have information I want to reference later.
No, never. Well, maybe once or twice a year if getting on a plane or something. Like reading the silly gossipy things when in a waiting room or at a friends house but otherwise dont bother. waste of money.
I used to buy the New Idea, from aged 16 to 22, so that was many, many years ago now. I used to drive in with my father to the city a couple of days a week to work, & he liked me reading the Mere Male' section to him. I don't think I bothered buying it after I got married though. I only read them now, when I visit the dentist or the hairdresser. A friend does very occasionally give me her magazines if she doesn't take them to the op-shop!
I use to buy them but they have got very expensive and I can no longer afford to buy them. I'll buy them 2ndhand if the crossword and the puzzles haven't been done. I get better value in a 2nd hand book which lasts longer.
